As a child I never realized, who wonderful my childhood was and also never realized how difficult my mind is. I just always realized, that everything was difficult, as soon as I had to interact with children my age. I grew up in a family led by my mum. She studied product design, when seh met my dad (musician) and got pregnant with my older sister. I mean we were well in the 80ies when that happened. So my dad (son of a leading professor of music in a university in the US), who got a job in Ireland found his only way of getting this situation handled was to tell my mum (26 at that time) he loved her and would marry her, if she just quit everything and came with him. Otherwise he would leave her with nothing. Crazy to think a woman would go, but a quick reminder: We were in the 80ies, my ... Read More about Contradiction or Complement?!
Here I am sitting at my table, drinking my iced coffee, watching a documentary with Charlotte Roche about love in India. And I feel grateful. In this situation feeling grateful is so much more intense and I guess important thus rare. I am very much tearing up a few times a day right now. Right now? What does that mean?

Hey there bumblebees, I am an 28-year old working girl, so let´s talk about the booze. As I was younger, I used to be into wine most of the time. Well beer was fine and trendy drinks never made me shake my head. But as I got older, I started to have higher standards in everything. At some point I started to dicover my deep and utterly love for gin. It started six years ago, about a year before I graduated and it started with my former boss, back then in an advertising agency.

Hey there bumblebees, ever since I started to eat low fructose I dreamed of having a big, buttery and fluffy croissant. Split of the crunchy crust and slather on some raspberry jam. Oh yeah and Oh la la. So here I sit in this wonderful little Café in Munich, writing down a very good recipe, based on this recipe by Aurelie Bastian. This is a recipe, I personally find quite easy, but I it also takes quite a long time, so you might try it on a rainy day, where you stay at home have a coffee on the couch and watch some episodes of Gilmore Girls. (One episode per waiting period is perfect!) :) ... Read More about Recipe: Croissants from scratch | low fructose, lactosefree
